Workers Compensation Entitlements in WA
Are you receiving weekly payments from your employer as a part of your workers compensation entitlements? The Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 (the ‘Act’) dictates the amount of weekly payments you should receive when you have an incapacity which prevents you from doing your full pre injury duties.
To make sure you are receiving your correct weekly payments as part of your full workers compensation entitlements you should speak to a lawyer who has the necessary experience to advise you correctly.
Medical Expenses – Workers Compensation Entitlements WA
We understand the complications that can arise when you seek to enforce your workers compensation entitlements. The Act is not very clear when it comes to medical treatment as it states the injured workers are entitled to be paid the ‘reasonable expenses’ incurred or likely to be incurred in respect of medical treatment.
Of course if the insurer thinks that an expense in not reasonable they may refuse to pay it, however, they are not always right.
